Class IV K-Laser Therapy - Benchmark Medical Group

K-Laser vs. Other LaserOur FDA cleared, 15 W, next generation, Class IV “K-Laser” treatment increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to the damages area. This results in reduced inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiffness and pain.


Accelerated Tissue Growth + Wound Repairklaser-windsor-chiropractor-wound-heal

This Laser Therapy is proven to bio-stimulate tissue growth and repair. The natural rejuvenation of skin requires the activa- tion of dermal fibroblasts (Human Dermal Firoblasts, HDF). The Class IV K-Laser scar repair treatments produces Human Dermal Fibroblasts (HDF), which in turn stimulate collagen synthesis – the growth of collagen & elastin fibers. Collagen is an essential protein required to repair and replace damaged tissue.

The K-Laser can penetrate up to four (4) inches into the epidermis reaching deep subcutaneous tissue to heat, stimulate and accelerate cellular function and reproduction. Circulation is increased allowing oxygen and nutrients to reach the area faster and more effectively. This increased cellular energy stimulates the removal of damaged tissue replacing it with healthy tissue including new collagen and elastin the critical building blocks of healthy, normal looking skin. Benchmark Medical Group offers safe and effective treatment of the following:

*Results may vary person to person

  • Surgical Scars
  • Acne Scars
  • Accident Scars
  • Open Wound / Cuts
  • Burns

K-Laser Promotes:

• Accelerated Cell Reproduction and Growth
• Improved Vascular Activity
• Increased Micro-Circulation
• Immune Stimulation
• Inflammation Reduction
• Improved Joint Flexibility
• Muscle Relaxation

Resulting Benefits:

• Deeper Penetration
• Stimulation of Nerve Regeneration
• Increased Metabolic Activity
• Reproduction and Growth
• Detoxification
• Accelerated Healing
• Restored Function

Pain Relief

This Class IV Laser Therapy treatment increases circulation, drawing water, oxygen and nutrients to the damages area. This results in reduced inflammation, swelling, muscle spasm, stiff- ness and pain. This Laser Therapy is proven to bio-stimulate tis- sue growth and repair.

PBM? Do you have any scientific references for your claims?

By Jan Tunér

Not too seldom, non-believers in PBM will ask for references, having difficulties in accepting what you say. Providing such references can take time and you may not be too used to collect them or to know where to find them. Below, then, is a brief selection of recent studies. First, there is a “short-list” of PMIDs. Copy, paste and enjoy!
